Yes, I also got the gcc update after the kernel update. With the new
gcc, I could fix the Nvidia kernel module.

Here's how:
# Show the current vermagic string of the kernel module
modinfo nvidia-384 -k 4.4.0-116-generic

# It will probably say:
# vermagic:       4.4.0-116-generic SMP mod_unload modversions
# Here the retpoline string is missing.
# You can fix this by removing and re-building the module with DKMS

sudo dkms remove nvidia-384/384.111 -k 4.4.0-116-generic
sudo dkms install nvidia-384/384.111 -k 4.4.0-116-generic

# After that the modinfo command will show
# vermagic:       4.4.0-116-generic SMP mod_unload modversions retpoline

You can now use the new kernel. You will probably have to do this with
all your DKMS kernel modules.
